    the end of the day Christie will be the "hold your nose" nominee. A lot of people say nah that's nuts look at Giuliani. However, Giulani had to contend with McCain. I don't see anybody else viable in the GOP right now...

      than hold your nose.   He's obviously done a very good job as Governor of NJ.  He got re-elected with 61%!  

      A good leader, if nothing else.

      From Neocon to sane- thanks to Obama- and Kos.

      •  yes, you are correct. However, we are talking (0+ / 0-)

        about the GOP and probably 50% will be holding their noses. The Obama hug was enough for 50% of the stupid party to begin disliking him.

      •  A good job in NJ??? (6+ / 0-)

        Vetoed minimum wage hike-overridden by voters.
        Vetoed marriage equality-overridden by courts.
        NJ unemployment one of the highest in US.
        Balanced budget on the backs of middle class and poor.
        Cancelled much needed public works projects.
        Refused to establish Obamacare exchange.
        Even where Sandy is concerned,  thousands are not back in their homes or businesses.

        This guy is very conservative.  Don't be fooled.

        NJ is ruled by unelected party bosses still to this day.  He plays ball with them and trashes anyone else.  Also he's played hardball will the democratic mayors at the shore so got their support. And don't forget, he's rise was jump started when as prosecutor he threw Newark's ex-mayor in jail with great fan fair. And other local politicians as well.  Many fear him.   Also, he got the implicit support of Obama.

        Final thought: Bully does not equal leader.
